‘Pengacau Raya Cina’ is already a bigger success than its predecessor, garnering over two million views, 147,419 likes and comments with over 40,000 shares in just over five days.
Last year‚Äôs surprise viral hit ‘Pengacau Raya’ netted nearly 2.6 million views on social media in one week.
Both campaigns look to unearth real-life heart warming stories of unity, showing that love extends the boundaries of culture and race.
‚ÄúLast year‚Äôs Pengacau Raya campaign was a huge success – and one of the most viewed Raya ads of the year. We wanted to continue that heartwarming story, while celebrating the beauty of multiculturalism here in Malaysia, reflecting BSN‚Äôs own respect for diversity,‚ÄĚ said Puspa Marina Dato‚Äô Haji Omar, SVP / head, strategic communications, Bank Simpanan Nasional said.
‚ÄúBuilding upon our recent rebranding, we wanted to reconnect with our audience on a social platform. The success of these social media campaigns has shown that our message has indeed resonated with the people of Malaysia.‚ÄĚ
The original ‚ÄėPengacau Raya’ was based on the insight that Malaysians are a truly multi-cultural society and this unity is even evident in our own families.
“The idea put a positive twist to the word ‚Äėpengacau‚Äô which made everyone laugh, ‚ÄĚ said Andrew Tan, creative director of Fishermen Integrated.
‚ÄúWhen it came to doing a campaign for Chinese New Year, it made perfect sense for us to continue the story of Aloy and Zaitun. We are glad everyone loves to be¬†‚Äėkacau-ed‚Äô by these films. You can expect more to come from Fishermen,‚ÄĚ he added.
